Except the heads. The heads are dumb. Need more face-masks + hoodies than weird hair.



I agree, but hoods are easy to sculpt with green stuff

They are? I've not seen them next to one another, although I have seen Flag heads on Cawdor, and they looked fine to me.

You'd hope so, right?

The ever so sudden vanishing of that stuff still doesn't make sense. It's not like that fortification stuff that came in plastic bags and was a weird colour plastic so clearly not from Nottingham; they were proper sprues made by GW. And they just up and disappeared...

... sort of...

... because their disappearance is not consistent. The Sisters battle chapel or whatever it's called is part of that range, and uses at least two of the original sprues from that range. The Derelict Factorum (and the one that doesn't have the Sector Mechanicus extras) has the 'Mechanicus' version of those wall panels, plus the same floor panel sprue. So some of it is still on sale, but a lot of the extras (the big statues, the small statues, that cool big double-wide archway) just aren't, and for no discernible reason.


Wait, what, when did this happen? This makes no sense at all, the stuff is very recent and really cool looking...

Apparently it's just getting reboxed but they're behind with it all (and got rid of the old boxes before the new ones were ready). Hopefully they won't just stick them in a large Battlezone box.

Based on the precedent set by the other gang update sprues so far, I expect the future sprues will at least try to fill out all options available to the gang's regular gangers (excepting some of the CCW options) - and then add at least 5 new heads. So:

Van Saar:
- Hand Flamer
- Las sub-carbine
- Flamer
- Grav gun
- Meltagun
- Plasma Gun
- Rad Gun
- Plasma Cannon
- Multi-melta
- Servo claw
- Perhaps the shock baton/power knife (although both are aruably already on the sprue)
- If we're lucky, they also add the Las-Plas combi and the Lascannon (I especially doubt the latter, though).

Cawdor:
- Sawn-off shotgun
- Autogun-flamer combi
- Flamer
- Long Rifle
- Heavy Stubber (based on the Escher one being included, and the Cawdor having so few weapons anyway)
- Heavy Flamer (same as above...)
- Axe/Cleaver
- Greatsword
- Two-handed Axe
- Two-handed Hammer
- Grenade Launcher (hopefully! If Redemptionist-only options are also included)

Delaque:
- Lasgun
- Handheld Autogun (hopefully!)
- Handheld web gauntlet (hopefully!)
- Hand Flamer
- Plasma Pistol
- Web Pistol
- Flamer
- Handheld long rifle (hopefully!)
- Meltagun
- Plasma Gun
- Web Gun
- Heavy Flamer

I'd look at the FW weapon packs, as the plastic ones seem to be pretty close copies.

They could use a 2 handed plasma gun

Also it would be nice to get Van Saar heads with hair, and mask, and for the female one too.

And Delaque is missing a right hand lastpistol.

Yes, but they don’t include all FW options, and some of the sculpts are new (most of them aren’t, though).

Oops, yeah, the Plasma Gun is already on the regular VS spue. The sub carbine not, though - the regular carbine is, but the sub carbine is the pistol version.

I completely forgot there were two types of carbine. Although I suppose it's possible that the intended representation of a sub-carbine is/will be simply the carbine "front" on the "pistol" butt.

The upgrade sprues are really nice so far, but I kind of hate that I'm tempted to buy one (and a new box of bodies) for every gang, instead of just sticking with the dozens of conversions I've made over the years. The visual unity is so tempting though...

The sub carbine is on there because you just use the carbine front end with the pistol back end. Sure the weapon is huge, but it is distinct.

It’s also not that much bigger than the laspistol which is the size of a house…

And every gang needs many more carbines than come in the gang box. They could do worse than selling while sprues just of carbines…

I feel your pain, Altruizine - the temptation to start a gang or 5 with the two boxes and a weapons sprue for the unity of design is huge.

This is the Las sub-carbine, switching the stock around should not magically turn a gun into a pistol. Giving the "plasma pistol" the long stock wouldn't turn it into a plasma gun.

Lady Credo, Rebel Lord is up on FW.

Rebel Lords are aristocrats from the Spire who, for whatever reason, have left the opulence of their former dwellings behind to seek out new lives in the underhive. Lady Credo is one such Rebel Lord. Equipped with the finest wargear and bionics money can buy – as well as her pair of artificer servo skulls, Sinestus and Dexterus – Lady Credo presents a formidable adversary to anyone foolish enough to try to claim the enormous bounty on her head.

If you’re looking to give your Gang a serious boost, be sure to hire this highly skilled and charismatic Rebel Lord. Armed with a master-crafted power sabre and master-crafted laspistol, she packs more than a punch when the shooting starts, while her inspiring presence keeps even the most faint-hearted gangers in the fight.

This kit is supplied as 12 components and comes with 1x 32mm Necromunda Base. Lady Credo's fighter card is also included.

Lady Credo is available to any Outlaw gang with an allegiance to a Fallen House, rules for which can be found in both Necromunda: Book of Judgement and Necromunda: House of Iron.

She really is a lovely model, but it’s puzzling that the weapon combination she has is not a valid choice in either of the two rulebooks mentioned (which each have different options for the Rebel Lord).

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

Clearly, the augmetic sub-frame that allows him to even pick up two lumps of metal bigger than his head has some kind of bracing to allow them to be fired as well.
Either that or they’re metallised plastic cap-guns that someone handed him hoping he could Ork them into working with his high psi-potential.

Clearly the guns themselves are inside fake casings. They're actually small guns firing low calibre, low velocity slugs, but in order to appear intimidating the Juve has hand-crafted giant looking exterior shells that make them appear to be massive feth-off hand cannons.

The Spektor is a brute that needs 2 sprues to build, there're only 1 long arm, and 2 short arms that are also used as optional build for the prospect.

A pretty good deal considered FW pricing on resin brute.
